treating the nose

08/03/17 08:25

When my dermatologist told me I could use a cream to treat the “superficial” cancer on my nose, I was delighted. Over the years he had already inflicted stitches on other parts of my face and, for some reason, I was sensitive about the nose.

I started the treatment July 10. The middle of my nose gradually turned red and, about a week ago, crusty. Last night – with only three more nights to go – I developed flu-like symptoms, one of the possible side effects of the cream. Stuffed nose, cough, chills. This morning I had a slight fever. And of course an unsightly nose. Next time I’m going with the knife.
